Default Lunchtine Large Cent and Indian Head

Yesterday at lunchtime I detected for a while. I discovered a 1846 Large Cent and an Indian Head Cent. I found the silver dime the day before.
Funny the LG and IH were from a park, and the dime from the woods. I would have expected it to be the other way around.

A typical east coast tall tale. The md'r "walks out for a leisurely lunch break walk". And waltzes to the nearest sandbox. And oh-so-easily bags a LC and IH.

Oh, and the green patina, zits, etc... *ALMOST* make it look as if you really dug them. Quite an impressive photo-shop job

Well, since you are on to our "scheme", we have to up the game. The crud is easier to photoshop, but the "zits"? They take the skill.

Hahah, I missed Toms comment about the zits.. I will be teaching a class about how to add and remove zits from your coins using Photoshop..
